A 16-member Nigerian trade mission arrived on Saturday (5 November) in the Ivory Coast capital of Abidjan for a 10-day visit. It was the first mission to any West African country to be undertaken by the Indigenous Businessman's Group of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce.
SYNOPSIS: The Ivorian Centre of External Commerce was the venue for talks between members of the Nigerian mission, led by the President of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Dotun Okubanjo, on the left in a light-coloured suit, and the Director of External Commerce for the Ivory Coast, Mr. Lambert Amon Tanoh, wearing glasses. The principal object of the mission was to promote bilateral business cooperation.
Mr. Tanoh welcomed the delegation and in reply the Nigerian mission leader said he hoped this would be the first in a series of visits which would help to promote trade between the two countries. Mr. Okubanjo said any cultural differences between them should be overcome in the interests of a better trading relationship.
